"Lynch's basic argument is that if we understand better the conditions under which knowledge is produced and disseminated-conditions he explores clearly and cogently-then we will become more `responsible' knowers." -- Wall Street Journal "[A] fascinating new book...Lynch has been writing about this topic for a long time, and passionately." -- Jill Lepore - The New Yorker "[Lynch] pursues his argument with commendable seriousness, clarity, and attunement to historical context....He has written an intelligent book that struggles honestly with important questions: Is the net turning us into passive knowers? Is it degrading our ability to reason? What can we do about this?" -- David Weinberger - LA Review of Books "Lynch effectively presents the case for rationality against factional loyalties and insists that there should be vigorous promotion of scientific methods and thinking in public discourse. . . . An excellent, much-needed contribution to the constant battle to sort truth from falsity." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "A bracing challenge to Internet enthusiasts." -- Booklist
